So here's the prayer shawl I mentioned in yesterday's post. It is so warm and comfy and is nice to wear around my shoulders and can stretch it out down my legs if I want to warm them up. The colors are muted and the yarn is so soft. Just wanted to show it off...the ladies worked hard on it! And the prayers were so welcome.
The following shots are from my yard. I am always trying to work on my photography, and with no babies to shoot and some uncooperative dogs, I tend to shoot plants. (The doggies DO NOT like it when I put the camera in front of my face.) So anyway, I came home the other day and it had just finished raining, so I grabbed my camera and walked around the yard.
This little vine was growing off some plant. I'm so into my plants, can't you tell? I have no idea what they are.
This is part of our sky pencil, complete with spider web. The sky pencil normally has dark leaves, but the buds are such a yellowy-green.
My hydrangea is blooming!!! We bought this plant last year when our social worker came to visit, because I had nothing in my front yard planters. And we picked PINK, cause the baby was a girl, but I'm glad that they bloomed again this year. I am so proud that they lived through the winter.
And I do love the picture. It should be said that I don't really edit my photos much. I know that many people do a lot with computer editing, and sometimes I play with them, but I think much of the skill comes in taking the photography to begin with. Equipment plays into it a lot, and so does knowing how to work your camera. I'm still learning, and I think I'm going to spend time with a professional photographer this summer. I offered myself up as an apprentice to a parent at the school where I work, and she said YES. Very excited.
Okay, not much else to report. Talk later!
